Holiday Goodies: Strawberry Cream Cookies


These were soft, not-too-sweet, beautiful little cookies. A very nice addition to your holiday cookie plate.

Strawberry Cream Cookies


1 cup butter, softened
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Seedless strawberry jam


In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Add flour and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.

Shape dough into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a 1/2-in.-deep indentation in the center of each ball; fill with about 1/4 teaspoon jam. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 10-12 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cook.

Yield: 5 dozen.

Notes: These were soft and satisfying. Really good and quite pretty.
